This Dad Doesn’t Show Up To His Only Daughter’s Dance Recital. Mom’s Reaction? I Would Have Done The Same Thing!!
Kids grow up too fast. Blink, and they’re out of diapers and behind the wheel of the family car. Blink again and they’re getting married. Blink, and they’re telling you to expect a second grandson. Life passes much too quickly, but that fact makes us cherish each and every moment that we have with them. Unfortunately, a lot of us get too caught up in work, side projects, or even other family members and sometimes we miss really important things in our children’s lives. We prioritize what we still need to get done, but sometimes, we choose things that are insignificant in the long run.
This mom had been helping her daughter to prepare for her dance recital for months now. Each day, she had a different dance class, but being this busy is what this little girl loved about dancing. This was a big recital. She had just turned 10, and was looking forward to the challenge since the beginning of the year.
When mom sat down next to grandma and grandpa, she kept trying to call her husband. The recital was about to start, and he wasn’t answering his phone! Was he really about to miss this monumental even in their daughter’s life? When she finally realizes where he has been this whole time, she can’t keep the tears from falling. What would you have done?
